Drake 'ready to date' newly-single Kim Kardashian and 'began messaging the star' after her split from Kanye West

DRAKE is reportedly "ready" to date newly-single Kim Kardashian and has been messaging her since she filed for divorce from Kanye West.

The rapper, 34, reached out to the KUWTK star, 40, when he heard about her split and is "confident" they'll see each other soon, sources claimed.

A source told Heat magazine: "Drake could never understand what Kim saw in Kanye – he was saying for years how he wasn't the right guy for Kim and it would all end in tears.

"He was surprised it took her so long to realise, and started messaging her the moment it became clear that the divorce was inevitable.

"He's ready to see her whenever she says the word, basically, and he's confident that will happen fairly soon."

Kim officially filed for divorce from Kanye in February after months of speculation that their seven-year marriage was over.

Earlier this month, Drake's fans became convinced that he was claiming to have slept with Kim behind Kanye's back in the lyrics of his new song.

In the song Wants and Needs, he raps: "Yeah, I probably go link to Yeezy
I need me some Jesus. But as soon as I start confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us."

It comes after the Canadian star sparked rumours he bedded Kim back in 2018, after Kanye revealed that Drake had a secret son.

Drake then appeared to insinuate he'd slept with Kim on his track In My Feelings.

On the record he rapped about having sex with a woman called Kiki, which is Kim's family nickname.

Kanye responded at the time by releasing a string of Instagram videos calling Drake out over the controversial lyrics.

In one outburst, Kanye said: "I told you I ain’t tell Pusha about your son."

Kim married the Yeezy mogul in 2014 and has four children with him – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, 21 months.

The SKIMS founder – who is being represented by divorce lawyer Laura Wasser – is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their brood.

The exes will split their $2.1billion fortune evenly thanks to a watertight pre-nup agreement they signed before getting hitched in 2014.

The pre-nup means that their separate fortunes and business empires are protected.

The Sun exclusively revealed that things could get ugly if Kanye makes any public attacks on Kim or her family.

A source said: “Kim is in the driving seat. If Kanye makes things difficult by badmouthing her or acting out, she’ll go for more money and full custody of their brood.

“Mud-slinging in public won’t work for their family in the long term. They want to split their wealth evenly and keep their kids in the luxurious lifestyle they are accustomed to.”

The Sun revealed Kim's “momager” Kris Jenner is acting as a mediator between the pair and is determined to keep the peace.
